Default Maniac Remake 2012

this is absolutely true and it's effing absured. Elijah Wood has been cast as Frank in the remake of this nasty. Elijah Wood, WTF!

Cool

Why? Who? What?... I can't imagine how anyone in charge of anything could think this is a good idea, you can hear the execs from here "Okay, but no scalping, no gratuitous sleaze and nothing to upset the MPAA, maybe a PG13" Only good that may come out of it would be Lustig getting a few quid.

I'm probably the only person in the world that quite likes this news! It could prove to be a very interesting and different take on the original rather than a copy-cat and (even more) pointless remake of Maniac. Elijah is a great actor and his role as the killer in Sin City was brilliant. I imagine it could be like Maniac but with a Norman Bates-like character.

I was just going to say he's great in Sin City so, while I'm not sure this remake will still work, I can imagine him doing a great job in the role

Maniac's not exactly a good film, but surely after the flops of Fright Night, Straw Dogs and The Thing, studios would leave remakes alone.
